Coralie’s Story

Since I was first diagnosed with bilateral hearing loss as a teenager back in the 1960s, I had always been reluctant to do anything about it. I was 23 by the time I finally agreed to wear a hearing aid and then only in my right ear. And since those days, stronger hearing aids enabled me to live a full life, but not without many challenges along the way. In late 2010, I finally decided to investigate the possibility of having a cochlear implant…

Each day I’m truly amazed at what I can hear. I can use the phone, listen to the radio and watch TV without captions – all of which has opened up a whole new world for me… In the words of my family, friends and co-workers, I should have had a cochlear implant many years ago. Everyone around me has noticed a vast improvement in my general health and well-being and I have never been happier.
